King James Bible - Sealed or resealed


 Share

Recommended Posts

About a year ago I bought 8 sealed copies of King James Bible for Gameboy.

I weighed them all (Same weight) and opened one I randomly picked to find the game, plastic sleeve, and manual. Just as I'd expect.

Recently a friend mentioned they looked re-sealed.

Can anyone add any insight on if these have been resealed or not?

They look legit to me because they look old.  Keep in mind, these are unlicensed so they will not have the h-seam type of seal you'd see on a typical Nintendo game of that era.  Maybe that's why  your friend thought it was a bootleg.

@poyeasfydo you mind showing us the pics of the inside contents, of the one you opened up?

I don't personally collect for sealed Gameboy US games, but I do have some experience with sealed games collecting in general. I'd say these appear legit factory seals, or in the least, the games are likely to be all brand new. Please bear in mind some companies seal their games differently to that of Nintendo factory outlets back then. So whilst they appear to be stock standard shrinkwrap seals, these might still be the original factory seal-type for this particular game.

@poyeasfy a long while ago I had to look into this because I was piecing together a CIB from various sources and I could not figure out if the box was supposed to have a cart tray. Well I actually managed to find this: 

(The answer to my question was there was no tray, just a baggie with the cart inside, bouncing around the box)

The picture quality isn't very helpful, but I can tell the seams are on the sides like for the ones you have. 

I feel pretty certain saying the following: Wisdom Tree was a low key operation and they probably didn't have the most high-end sealing machine. The seals probably looked uneven and that's how they were shipped to bookstores or whatever. I wouldn't worry too much. The reason your friend thought they didn't look like authentic seals is because they were not high quality seals, simple as that.

I believe this game had some shipped with holders and some without.   I've messaged people that have sealed units and about half of them rattle around.   I agree 100% that this company didn't have high quality sealing machine.
